At the end of July, the Jellystone Park at Whispering Pines in East Tyler, Texas, opened its long-anticipated laser tag game.

The laser tag is just under an acre in size and can accommodate up to 20 guests.

“We’ve had a lot of interest in this, so we’re eager to have the game up and running for our guests to enjoy,” says Don Tardy, the park’s co-owner who bought the campground four years ago with his wife, Jan, and her two adult children, Colt and Bree Perrin.

Tardy also noted that this has been the busiest summer yet, mostly because they invested more than $1 million in new games and other improvements around the campground over the past three years, including an 18-hole miniature golf course.

The Tyler campground is one of the first Jellystone Parks in the U.S. to offer a free texting service to its guests, enabling them to be notified of Yogi Bear sightings, special events and news during their stay at the campground.

From making her kids’ Kraken Halloween costumes inspired by Seattle’s National Hockey League team to chasing the sun in eastern Washington looking for spots to camp, Kelly Saling’s love for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in all aspects of her life—including her career. Promoted to senior vice president and chief sales officer at Visit Seattle in September 2021, Saling pulls from this personal appreciation to plug people into the region’s array of venues, natural landscapes, and everything in between.

 

Comfortable, familiar, and adorned with the color tones and tapestries of Peru, Portland’s Andina restaurant, housed in a historic onetime abattoir and warehouse in the city’s Pearl District, serves up modern Peruvian cuisine. 

 

Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event.
